the tag on bottom left cnr says March 1964.
The photo has a caption that says MArch. Pretty much puts the month beyond dispute. It's the year that't hard to read. As for grass, yeah i noticed the brown. But I think it could be the freeway still being new that the grass wasn't yet planted or grown or something.The grass up the centre of the Eastern Fwy looks dry??? so maybe summer ..not autumn or spring
that stack was built in 1970 and was pulled down only a couple of years ago.The caption definitely says March. In this part of the world that means Autumn, not Spring.
Going by what Cullwulla says about the chimney, it would be at least a few years prior to 1994. The Eastern freeway appears to have traffic on it which means the photo is from after it opened. This implies the picture was taken sometime between 1978 and 1994.
Cul, that picture also shows a chimney at RWH. Do you know if this is still standing or the date it would have been demolished? I'm not sure but the flagpole may have been built for the Bicentenary in 1988 which would narrow the exact date even further.
One of the terraces opposite the bowls club which is now University Square.Which one is it ?
The Old Melbourne was built before the early 1980s - I used to frequent the disco there in the 1980s.The dark building behind - this side - of what was the Old Melbourne Motor Inn I think wasnt built till early '90's??? so I'll re estimate .....1993, 12th. february at 1.42 pm.
